Mineral Wells, Texas: Large Yogi Bear Statue

A former Jellystone Campground is no more, but its large Yogi Bear Statue still stands, well-maintained by whoever owns the property, his arm raised in greeting to the passing cars.

Large Yogi Bear Statue

Earlier this year as I was driving through (if I remember correctly) Mineral Wells, TX. I saw a pretty big statue of Yogi Bear (the Hanna Barbera cartoon character) in someone's front yard. It seemed to be made of fiberglass. I tried to get a picture of it but my camera picked just that minute to break and I haven't been back. It seemed out of place as it was in the front yard of an average looking house in a residential area.
